The Gorgon field is centered about 130 km off the northwest coast of Western Australia, where the water depth is approximately 200 m (120 ft.).

The Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields are estimated to contain 35.3 trillion cubic feet (990 billion cubic meters) of natural gas and may have a lifespan of 60 years.{{cite news|url=http://www.spe.org/jpt/print/archives/2010/11/11Gorgon.pdf|title=Gorgon To Drive Australian LNG Asia-Export Surge|work=JPT|date=November 2010|accessdate=2011-06-02}}
